Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham: Baby on the Way!

Months ago on The Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr. asked Lauren Burnham to accept his final rose. (Well, sort of.)

Now, Arie Luyendyk Jr. has asked Lauren Burnham to accept something else:

His DNA! In the form of a life growing inside of Burnham’s womb!

That’s right, folks, Arie and Lauren are expecting a child together!

The reality stars confirmed this blessed piece of news themselves to Us Weekly, with Lauren telling the tabloid for its latest issue:

“I kind of had a feeling that I might be pregnant. So my friend insisted on bringing a pregnancy test over.

“Arie came out with the test in his hand and tears in his eyes. He was like, ‘You’re pregnant!’”

This is both very exciting for Arie and Lauren and also very surprising: few couples that meet and fall in love on The Bachelor remain together, let alone procreate together.

But perhaps drama is somehow the key to happiness.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Mesnick had a baby and are very happily married to this day… after the latter dumped the woman he chose on his season’s finale and asked Molly out on the After the Rose special.

Similarly, Luyendyk Jr. and Burnham were at the center of a controversial story line on Season 20.

After Arie proposed to Becca Kufrin on his finale, he visited her several weeks later and – in front of an ABC cameraman – broke up with her in favor of Burnham.

The pair got engaged on the After the Final Rose special in March of 2016 and are set to exchange vows in January of 2019 in Hawaii.

“I’ve made some bad decisions but the best decision was running back to you,” Arie told Lauren during the proposal, adding:

“I can’t imagine a life without you. … I truly believe you are my soulmate. I’m ready to face this life with you and all that comes with it. The good, and the bad. I love you so much.”

Very sweet words, no doubt.

They were just clouded a bit at the time by the fact that Arie had only recently proposed to Becca before doing the same with Lauren.

(Becca, of course, went on to become The Bachelorette and is currently engaged herself, waiting to have a baby. So everyone has ended up happy here!)

Said Burnham ths summer during a visit to The View, in regard to an eventual marriage:

“We’re just really happy with each other, and we vibe well together. We’re best friends, so we’re just ready for that next step.”

Speaking to Us Weekly, meanwhile, Arie confirmed that he and Lauren weren’t really thinking of starting a family just yet. But these things happen sometimes.

“We weren’t trying, but we are so excited. It’s going to be a whole new chapter in our lives,” he said.

And the guy is clearly in love.

This is what he wrote on Instagram last week, as a caption to a photo of himself and Lauren:

I can’t sleep… the house is quiet, you’re next to me. I can hear your soft breath and I wonder what you’re dreaming about.

I closed my eyes tonight and our future played like a beautiful romance with flashes of our wedding, travels, our children and a house full of friends, family and love.

I woke up and you were wrapped in my arms, our pups on the floor next to us.

Now I lay awake wanting to fast forward our lives but in the same breath push pause and not let these eyes close for too long because this is what true love feels like.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade Shock Fans, Welcome “Miracle” Baby

It’s a girl for Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade!

It’s also a major surprise for anyone who has been following the lives of this actress and her basketball-playing husband.

On Thursday evening, Union shared three precious new photos on her Instagram page, announcing to the world that she and Wade had welcome a daughter via surrogate

“A LOVELY DAY,” wrote Union, adding by way of confirmation:

“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days.

“Welcome to the party sweet girl!”

This is the first child for Union, who has been very open in the past about her numerous miscarriages.

Wade, meanwhile, has three sons (Xavier Zechariah, 5; Zion Malachi Airamis; 11; and Zaire Blessing Dwyane, 16) from a previous relationship — and he and Union are also raising his 17-year old nephew.

In the memoir she released last year, “We’re Going to Need More Wine,” Union revealed she “had eight or nine miscarriages,” writing in the biography:

“For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant – I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle or coming out of an IVF cycle.”

The couple got married in August of 2014 after dating for many years.

Even after enduring those three years of failed IVF cycles and being so very bloated from the hormones at nearly all times, Union explained in her memoir that she and Wade “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

And that day has finally now arrived.

No information is available about the surrogate, as we would expect.

And neither Wade nor Union revealed the name of their daughter nor any of her measurements.

But who cares, right?!? She’s here!!!!

Added Union on Instagram, quoting song lyrics:

When I wake up in the mornin’ love/And the sunlight hurts my eyes/And there’s something without warning/Love Bears heavy on my mind.

Then I look at you/And the world’s alright with me/Just one look at you/And I know its gonna be/A lovely day.

Other celebrities have also gone the surrogate route to have kids.

Most notably to most readers, as we assume, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West used this method in order to being their third child into the world due to complications related to Kim’s first two pregnancies.

Please join us in screaming CONGRATULATIONS as loudly as you can to Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade!

Your daughter is perfect, guys.


Christmas Abbott, Big Brother Alum, Arrested for Attack on Baby Daddy’s Alleged Side Piece

According to official police reports, it was not a very merry Tuesday afternoon for former Big Brother contestant Christmas Abbott.

TMZ and Us Weekly both confirm that the 36-year old reality star turned herself into Tampa authorities yesterday, at which time she was booked for felony criminal mischief.

For what rather incredible and violent reason? Scroll down to find out!

Based on records obtained by TMZ, Abbott drove to a local Florida gym back in August in order to confront her baby daddy’s alleged side piece.

Cops say that Abbott then flew into a complete rage, asking all kinds of questions of this unnamed woman prior to throwing a cup of coffee in her direction. But that wasn’t all.

Christmas then rammed into the alleged victim’s car in the parking lot with her own.

Abbott was eight months pregnant with her first child at the time, a boy who would be born a few weeks later and named Loyal.

The boy’s father is Benjamin Bunn, a fellow fitness enthusiast who is no longer with the Big Brother Season 19 third-place finisher.

TMZ quotes this same police report in stating that Abbott called the other woman a “pathetic home-wrecking little slut,” among other insults.

She believed at the time of the confrontation that the woman was sleeping with Bunn, even though Bunn told Us Weekly last month that he and Abbott ended their romance last December.

“Unfortunately, I had very little contact with Christmas in the last few months of her pregnancy,” Bunn told this tabloid, adding in October:

“However, prior to that, we spent almost every day with each other for six to seven months straight. I went to every doctor’s appointment, accompanied her for travel, moved furniture and did all the things that two caring adults do with and for each other…

“I was finally able to reach her a few days before [her] due date. I found out she was being induced through Instagram, and shortly thereafter received an email.”

But back to Abbott’s arrest:

The responding officer on the scene says Abbott kept yelling at her man’s mistress while the officer tried to calm her down.

Cops declined to process her because she was so far along, although her vehicle was seized and the sides agrees that Abbott could turn herself in at a later date.

And this is what she did on Tuesday.

As previously mentioned, Abbott came in third place during season 19 of Big Brother.

addition to her stint on the CBS reality show, Christmas is well-known for being a series CrossFit competitor – and she was actually the first female NASCAR pit crew member.

How cool and random, right?!?

Hours after her arrest, meanwhile, Abbott shared a video of son Loyal Atticus sleeping on her chest.

“How could I ever get enough of that sweet smile,” she wrote along with it.

“I literally can stare and watch him all day long just to watch him & maybe see a lil laugh or giggle. He simply lights up my heart & makes me so fulfilled!”
